strings. >> a lot to talk about with david gergen, chief white house correspondent jessica yellin and dana bash. jessica, we heard the president make this a promise that it's going to become more transparent. he says it was already happening before the snowden leaks. but is that really realistic? >> well, as you point out, wolf, he did say that he wanted more transparency back in may. he said that. that was right before edward snowden's first leak was in june. so his assertion is that the snowden leaks just sped up a process that was going to happen any way. well, we also have to take a bigger look at the big picture, which is did snowden actually lead to these new safeguards he put in place? we know that two democratic senators have been calling for more transparency and even reforms for more than a year now. sn when the head of the intelligence community went before congress, he's admitted now that he was less than truthful in talking about them. so that was all before snowden. would this have happened without snowden? we can't know, the train has left the station, but it does seem to ha
, as opposed to the nsa surveillance program. dana, what is the reaction on capitol hill? i know the lawmakers are in recess, on vacation, the president is going on vacation tomorrow but we saw what speaker bayner said, suggesting the president was concerned about saving face than defending the programs. >> that's right. look, i mean, this is kind of the one issue or few issues, i should say where republicans are supportive of the president. this nsa program they say has been helpful and they have been kind of his biggest cheerleaders on this while the democrats, many of the democrats, as jessica was just talking to, leading liberal democratic senators have been maybe the most vocal in terms of criticism. this changed that a little bit. but one thing i would say about peter king, one of the lawmakers you were talking about, he said the president is on an apology tour. that illustrates the flight within the republican party because peter king, as you know is making noise about being president and he's trying to push the wing of the republican party that is more hockish against those on the repu
those represent, conservatives do not? >> that is a big part of -- dana rohrabacher was just speaking a few days ago where he basically tipped his hand in this. it's basically if the planet is warming then we'll need government intervention. because we don't like government intervention, ergo the planet cannot be warming. and it's a reverse engineered logic that gets them to opposing it. >> polls show it's a pressing issue for americans, an issue you examine in the documentary. let's take a look at your work. >> according to a recent gallup poll, only one-third of americans are greatly worried about climate change. what can possibly explain this apathy when 99.8% of scientific study support the existence of human-caused global warming? well, some of the credit goes to the so called experts who peddle dubious science to counter any government attempt to tackle the issue, the deniers. >> if you do nothing about this at all, for the whole of the next 23 years, the worst that will happen, using the u.n.'s own estimates, is a one fahrenheit degree warming, which will be largely harmless an
